I found this recipe on the web while I was on a search for ZWT recipes.

I liked that this followed a lot of the older generation meals from North of England in that it uses just a few ingredients to make something very filling and pretty healthy. I do think it needs some sort of stock rather than simply water. I ended up stirring in some vegetable stock powder towards the end and it lifted it a good deal. Also,it needed a heavier hand with the seasoning than I would normally use but in the end it resulted in a filling and economical vegetarian meal. Made for Zee Zany Zesty Cookz for ZWT 6.
